Blackberry Enterprise Server 10: Attachment too large by policy

I have:
- Exchange Server 2010 SP3
- Blackberry Enterprise Server 10.2.4
- Devices Blackberry Q10 and iPad - both use ActiveSync.

I cannot open any attachment larger than 10 MB on the Q10 - error message "Attachment too large by policy".
I can open these attachments on the iPad.

On the Exchange server in the ActiveSync policy, max. attachment size was not set - I have set it to 51200 KB, but this did not help.

On the BES10, I could not find any setting for attachment download size limit.
However I remember that on the old BES5, the maximum value for attachment download size was 10 MB.

Does anyone know if 10 MB is a fixed limit in BES10, too - or if and where this can be changed?

Hello tshearon, which restriction do you mean exactly?

I've done another test:
I've sent a 8 MB JPG attachment and a 12 MB JPG attachment to myself.
When I set max. attachment size in the Exchange ActiveSync policy to 5120 KB, then I get the error message both for the 8 MB and for the 12 MB file.
When I set max. attachment size to 51200 KB, then I can open the 8 MB file - but I still get the error message for the 12 MB file. So there must be a limit of 10 MB *somewhere".

I've been able to increase the attachment download limit by changing the following settings on the Client Access Server (not sure if all 3 settings are  necessary, however):

In C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\ClientAccess\Sync\web.config
 
MaxDocumentDataSize: changed from 10240000 to 52428800 (i.e. 50 MB)
maxRequestLength: increased from 10240 to 51200 (i.e. 50 MB)

maxAllowedContentLength: changed from 30000000 to 52428800 (i.e. 50 MB)
(Via IIS Manager, as described here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh529949(v=exchg.150).aspx)

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!
